“I love the different points of view on offer in the ALG [Athlete Learning Gateway] Community and the fact that no one is wrong and that there is good explanation if you didn’t understand something,” says four-time Olympian Kurt Couto.
It is a really dynamic space where experts and athletes themselves can share their experiences and their knowledge.Dr Amira Najah Academic contributor to the ALG platform
Many Olympians, such as Michael Johnson, Kirsty Coventry, Lawrence Ndlovu and Angela Ruggiero as well as coaches, sports institutes, sports leaders and leading academics, have contributed unique content for this platform.
“It is a really dynamic space where experts and athletes themselves can share their experiences and their knowledge,” comments Dr Amira Najah, an academic contributor to the platform. “It is an innovative way to help interested athletes in learning and appropriating knowledge and tools to enhance their performance and future careers.”
Strengthening support to athletes on and off the field of play is a key topic within Olympic Agenda 2020, the IOC’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement, and the Athlete Learning Gateway was one of the first tangible projects to come out this strategic roadmap.
